    Question very confused

    So i brought my rsv1000r factory on saturday but whenever i look for a set of exhausts there listed as follows

    rsv mille 2004 - 2005

    or (taken from the akrapovic site)

    rsv mille 2007 - 2009


    but mine is a 53 plate, do i just by the 04-05 stuff as the pre 03 exhuasts is for the older shape...

    here is my ride


    (image not to scale

    if someone cold enlighten me where im going wrong i would be well chuffed, as i have said before i am very new to rsv's so i;m gunna be sapping you lot for all your knowledge plausible!

    cheers Ollie c

    thanks heroblob!

    i knew it was the new shape but was confused over whether i was looking at the right parts. do you recon the exhuast for the newest models would fit as id like a set of these

    but this one is the newer shape than mine... any ideas from what i would think the zorst exit at the same point!?

    thanks again Ollie c

    Hi all.

    Now I am really confused after seeing the pics, I have an 06 rsv-r and am now wondering if akrapovic cans off an 04 will fit or do i need to go for the 07 -09 ones listed on the akrapovic site?

    What a headache.

    Correct me if I'm wrong(sure someone will) but don't the later Akro slipons with the carbon end pieces have 'cats' built in and are very expensive.
    Why would you want to take off the standard cans with cats to replace with slip ons with cats. Is'nt the whole idea to make some proper V2 noise with a tiny bit of performance gain?
    Just an opinion
